A very nice clean example of a Seiko Sporstmatic Weekdater 7619-7010 Automatic 'Deluxe' from July 1966 in a stainless steel case. This watch has an amazing silver sunburst dial which constantly changes with the light. The case and case-back are in great condition, only ever hand polished. Serviced in October 2020 and keeping excellent time. Day/date at 3 o'clock in English featuring the iconic Sunday in red. Date quickset button feature at 2 o'clock, recessed crown just above 4 o'clock.
Seiko introduced the Sportsmatic 5 in 1963, the series was named for the five key features present in every watch bearing the 5 logo: 1. Diaflex, Seiko’s unbreakable mainspring, 2. Diashock shock resistant design, 3. Water resistance 4. Day and date display in a single window 5. Automatic movement. Unbelievably the 5 series is still produced today!
Movement: Original SEIKO Cal. 7619A - excellent condition, screw heads are in good condition. Fully serviced October 2020, test worn for 24 hours & keeping excellent time during inspection.
